As I have said many times over, if you are approached by an attacker make as much noise as you can. But what if you are grabbed from behind and the attacker covers your mouth? Personal Alarms are very inexpensive devices that you carry in a pocket, on your belt, or even in your hand and when you pull a small pin it activates an ear piercing siren sure to scare away even the most determined of criminals. Some personal alarms even have built in strobe lights that will temporarily blind and disorient an attacker. Many of these devices can be easily adapted to act as door and window guards as well.
As you approach your car, look around and under it. Check the inside for anyone also. If anything looks strange and you have an uneasy feeling, walk away and call someone for help.
You can buy a personal alarm that doubles as a door alarm. As a pepper spray it activates when the strap attached to the alarm pin is pulled. You can also hang this device over the knob of any non-metallic door, the device will activate instantly as soon as an intruder touches your door. These dual-alarms make good travel security for hotels, dorm rooms, and extra safety in threatening situations.
